The security service detained an agent of the special services of the aggressor country during counter-subversive measures in Odessa.
The attacker collected intelligence about the location and movement of units of the Armed Forces in the city.
Among its main tasks was detecting possible combat positions of air defense and Ukrainian coastal missile systems “Neptun”.
In addition, the enemy henchman was interested in information about the location of checkpoints, fortified areas, and the specifics of protecting energy-generating facilities in the south of Ukraine.
The occupiers needed intelligence information to prepare and carry out targeted missile strikes on the city.
After “arrivals” over the city infrastructure, the Russian agent “reported” to his supervisors about the results of the enemy shelling.
The SSU employees detained the intruder for another attempt to transfer classified information to the enemy.
According to the investigation, the detainee is a local resident who, at the beginning of the full-scale invasion, went to the special services of the Russian Federation and offered them his help in the war against Ukraine.
It was established that the attacker contacted the aggressor through anonymous messengers and social networks. He also gave them information about Ukrainian objects with coordinates and a detailed area description.
During the search of the detainee’s residence, law enforcement officers found a mobile phone and a laptop with evidence of conspiratorial correspondence with the occupiers.
Measures to expose an enemy accomplice were carried out by the SSU staff of Odessa region together with the regional department of strategic investigations of the National Police under the procedural guidance of the prosecutor’s office.
